Sequence stratigraphy has proven to be a powerful tool in understanding and predicting the distribution, geometry, and continuity of elements of reservoir, source, and seal. The aim of this one-week course is to provide a general overview of the principles of sequence stratigraphy, and to demonstrate its application to exploration and production.
The course will include providing conceptual models, developing a workflow to examine core, log, and seismic data, and reviewing how these data can be integrated in a sequence stratigraphic framework. Key examples will illustrate how sequence stratigraphy can be used to subdivide a reservoir, constrain reservoir models, and generate high-resolution, geologically constrained predictions of reservoir systems, and exercises will emphasize and expand on these concepts. The course will include discussion of concepts and applications, and practical hands-on examples, from both carbonate and siliciclastic systems.
